Hold on to hope. Be an optimist - Get HAPPY

Recommended Posts


I've been called an optimist
I believe there is always hope and always a little light in the dark
It's all about hope.

A Cockeyed Optimist Lyrics
South Pacific

When the skies are bright canary yellow
I forget every cloud I've ever seen
So they call me a cockeyed optimist
Immature and incurably green

I have heard people rant and rave and bellow
That we're done and we might as well be dead
But I'm only a cockeyed optimist
And I can't get it into my head

I hear the human race is falling on its face
And hasn't very far to go
But every whippoorwill is selling me a bill
And telling me it just ain't so

Now I could say life is just a bowl of Jello
And appear more intelligent and smart
But I'm stuck like a dope with a thing called hope
And I can't, no, I won't get it out of my heart
Not this heart


Also from South Pacific is one of my all time favorite songs that expresses how I feel--"You've Got To Be Taught"
